Or by mail order? I plan to start my camino at or near Pamplona, where can I buy a credential in advance?

Thanks in advance

Where are you starting? If SJPDP, YOU CAN GET ONE THERE for Free! I joined the "American Pilgrims on the Camino" $50 sent for my credential and arrived a couple weeks later. Hope this helps. Al

I think any country with an CSJ-affiliated association will provide them. We get ours online from the Canadian Company of Pilgrims - http://www.santiago.ca/

Very easy, and especially useful if you are worried about getting the credencial once in Spain.

There is a group in Adelaide who are going through the process at present of forming a "formal" Friends of the Camino, and when that is done we hope to have a pilgrim credential to offer to our members. I will post the latest info about this when all is confirmed - possibly 6 - 8 weeks away. regards, Janet

Does this mean we can now get pilgrim credencials in Australia?

Hi Trudy, I am not sure what site Frank has found that is the Australian CSJ. As far as I have been able to find out there is no official CSJ here. As I said in the post above a group of us have been working towards getting one off the ground, although our name will be a "friends of" rather than a CSJ, and as soon as we become official we will have a credential available for members. The time is getting closer, and we will publish it as soon as it is. I am afraid it is a case of "watch this space" until then. regards, Janet

The kindle camino guide had a list of links to various CSJ around the world, Australia was on that list. After closer examination it is actually the UK CSJ, I was wrong :(

Here is a link to the Pilgrim's Office "Credencial" page. They establish what is required for a credencial that will be accepted at the end of your camino when you go to get your compostela. I seem to remember that they won't accept one from a tour company, but I could be wrong.

Hi Johnnyman
You can get your credencial at the Bishop's Palace in Pamplona. We did in 2009 but I have forgotten where it is. Sorry
Heather
